Ames First United Methodist Church has formed a Rapid Response COVID Team that meets frequently to review and address the current situation across our community. Our goal is a return to our 3 full services as soon as we are able. We value your health and your soul, and we continue to look for ways to ensure God’s message finds you during these difficult times.

Re-entry Guidelines and Information

For In Person Worship, we need your help to make it happen. We require ushers at the front door to take temps and to take down names. Additional ushers are needed at the Sanctuary level as well. Please sign up here to help!

Please find the most recent information from the Rapid Response Team about reopening the church building below.

Below you will find the most current information regarding guidelines and protocol.
